I seem to remember that there was a program that made installing flash very easy. Does anyone have a link?

Thanks

use Flash-Aid it works great.

I use the beta flash 11 for x64 and works fine though.

Define easy ...

The tar ball from adobe is as easy as 3 commands in a terminal

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11.html

1. Get the tar ball :


wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11/flashplayer11_b2_install_lin_64_080811.tar.gz

2. extract

tar -xvf flashplayer11_b2_install_lin_64_080811.tar.gz

3. copy the lib

sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

About as easy as any other method

Well you could ease it a little with GUI ;-)

Download, right click and choose extract. Then copy the libflashplayer.so to the directory.

depends on how comfortable you are in terminal
